I’m Fully Vaccinated – Now What?
I think I speak for everyone when I say that I can't wait for things to get back to some sort of normalcy. Now that more people are getting vaccinated, we are getting closer. I received my second COVID-19 vaccine shot two weeks ago so that means I am completely vaccinated. But what does that exactly mean. What can I do now?
I find myself meeting up with people who are wearing masks letting them know that I am completely vaccinated in case I am without my mask. I wasn't sure though if this was the proper thing to do. I consulted with the CDC website to figure out what I can and can't do now that I am vaccinated.
The CDS says since I am fully vaccinated, I can gather indoors with other fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask or staying six feet apart. Check that off my list because on Easter Sunday we did just that. We were fortunate that all of our family was also completely vaccinated. I can't wait to go to Disney World again because the CDC says that I don't have to get a COVID test before or after I travel within the United States. Also, I found out that if I am around someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 I don't need to stay away from other people or get tested.
Although I have been fully vaccinated, the CDC is still telling me to take precautions. They urge me to still wear a mask, which I am, stay six feet apart from other people, and avoid crowds and public places that are poorly ventilated.
No matter what I have to do, I am hoping this just gets us all closer to being able to be with our family and friends again along with live concerts. Man do I miss those.
